  • Resolved ptrz


    I checked the minimalist theme I have installed on my website in firefox and opera, and the colors came out way off. it’s also adding borders haphazardly, ( I didn’t dare to check it in IE yet) but it looks fine in safari.
    I’m still going to customize the colors but I want to make sure it’s going to be consistent first.
    do anyone know how to deal with this?
    please help me out if you do.

    Can’t see what’s wrong with it in Firefox myself.

    thanks for replying,
    ok so I updated firefox right now to latest version to be sure, (that solved border issue).
    well it’s nothing except for the colors : the background is coming out too light, I even made the background 90% black and it still comes out white, on hover type comes out too dark and it should be lighter?
    am I being too fussy?

    the background is coming out too light, I even made the background 90% black and it still comes out white

    The background for what exactly?

    the background for the website, the main Background
    html, body{ background-color:#too light;}
    please compare what you see in firefox to what you see in safari

    I’ve just made it darker to show more contrast between the two.
    also try hovering over the menu type, it does the exacte opposite in firefox : type turns black, and in safari it turns white.

    What stylesheet are you editing? The background that I’m seeing is white.

    From styles/white.css:

    html, body {

    ok now I know what’s causing the problem,
    this theme comes with different styles that the viewer would have to choose from in the browser, (if you go to : view/style/grey – in firefox)
    I deleted the rest of the style sheets since i only want the grey one to be used as the style sheet, but it’s still won’t choose the grey by itself,
    so I’ll have to find the code that is telling the browser about the other styles and change it,
    do you know where that is?
    I’m trying to look for it and can’t find it,
    thanks for your patience,

    Try looking in header.php for:

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/styles/white.css" title="white" />

    and change white.css to grey.css (assuming that’s the name of the stylesheet that you prefer). You can also delete the lines that start with:
    <link rel="alternate stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/styles

    Dear esmi,

    I had to delete this line as well to make it work :

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”<?php bloginfo(‘stylesheet_directory’); ?>/scripts/styleswitcher.js”></script>

    Thank you very much

    Sorry to barge in with a ridiculously basic question but I noticed you had altered the text in Minimalist theme to upper and LOWER case — was just curious what code changes are necessary.

    Obviously I see the places where “uppercase” is noted in the stylesheet I was just wondering the proper way to add “lowercase” in conjunction with the uppercase.

    Thanks so much.
